Roman bathrooms

Ancient roman bathrooms

By 33 BC there were 170 baths, public and private in Rome alone. As the empire grew bathing places became more and more luxurious. By the end of the first century huge private and public baths had been built. Martial referred to them as thermae.

HOME INSPECTION CHECK LIST FOR PLUMBING

The following is the home inspection check list for most of the companies which operate the home inspection for plumbing.
Kitchen
____ Working exhaust fan that is vented to the exterior of the building
____ Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter ("GFCI") protection for electrical outlets within 6 feet of the sink(s)
____ Dishwasher: drains properly, no leaks, baskets, door spring operates properly
____ No leaks in pipes under sinks
____ Floor in cabinet under sink solid, no stains or decay
____ Water flow in sink adequate
____ No excessive rust or deterioration on garbage disposal or waste pipes


Bathrooms
____ Working exhaust fan that doesn't terminate in the attic space
____ Adequate flow and pressure at all fixtures
____ Sink, tub and shower drain properly
____ Plumbing and cabinet floor under sink in good condition
____ If sink is metal, it shows no signs of rust, overflow drain doesn't leak
____ Toilet operates properly
____ Toilet stable, no rocking, no stains around base
____ Caulking in good condition inside and outside of the tub and shower area
____ Tub or shower tiles secure, wall surface solid
____ No stains or evidence of past leaking around base of bath or shower

Everything sounds good but is missing the most important part. They omit the video camera inspection for main sewer line. Why is important? Because that can save you thousands of $. Ask the Home Inspector if has been done the video camera inspection and ask for report. If the answer is not please call a plumbing company and have the inspection done. Ask for DVD and keep in your records. Now you can buy the house.

Vintage bathrooms.








Did you know ?

Did you know ...
          The oldest indoor flush toilet belonged to King Minos of Crete, who ruled from his porcelain throne more than 2800 years ago.

          Famous and often controversial rock star Ozzy Osbourne was a plumber's apprentice before getting into the music industry.
                                               

         Thomas Crapper didn't invent the toilet, but he was the first one to market it to the masses.

Thanksgiving Day around the corner

Because Thanksgiving Day is around the corner we reminding you few plumbing tips which will help you to have a wonderful Holiday and a blessed Day with your families.

1. It’s important to know that your garbage disposal can only handle so much, and sometimes, it can’t handle many different types of foods and liquids. Be mindful of what you’re putting down your garbage disposals. Drop the big pieces of food in the garbage can.

2.If you’re having overnight guests or you’re hosting Thanksgiving, chances are somebody won’t follow your “toilet paper only rule.” It may be worth posting a sign in your bathroom that warns your guests to not flush the following items:
  • Sanitary napkins/feminine products
  • Flush able wipes
  • Cleaning wipes
  • Facial Cleansing Pads
  • Cotton Balls & Swabs
  • Paper towel
3. If you’ve got a house full of guests, wait at least 15 minutes between showers. The reason for this isn’t just to replenish hot water, it’s also important to let your drains clear.

4. Check if the kitchen sink drain is making the Vortex, the spinning think of the water. If you don't see that Vortex call the plumber to clean the kitchen sink drain. 

At the end some of the beautiful pictures which make such a beautiful day the Thanksgiving Day

Short story

Not so long time ago, in one of our shop came in a gentleman and he was starting to look at the

items displace in the show room, toilets, lavatories, cabinets, bath tubs and showers. I was with one of my manager in the shop and my attention was diverted by the client. I let my manager know there is something interesting with our new client. After he was looking enough time he was touching with one of his finger few items and after that he was watching very close his finger. I was intrigue but in the mean time I knew his gesture was something which i badly wanted to know what means. We approach him and ask if is looking for something and he said I want to by for my apartment all the fixtures and ceramic tile from this store. I said I am glad to here that and also I brought to his attention what I have been notice his gesture. He gave me a life lesson. He said it was the first store in the town which didn't have on the items dust, and those was clean as a whistle. Also he said if you are invited to eat somewhere, at friends house or whatever first you have to ask permission to go to the bathroom and if the toilet it is clean like a whistle you can eat in that house because certainly the food will be fresh and clean. So much true.

Fall 2015

The fall is upon us. The summer is a nice book with beautiful pictures and lovely nights tale under the pleasant temperatures. Probably not to many plumbing issues but now is the time to check few things which will move you through the fall and winter at ease. First off all in October not later   please drain the outside spigot. If you don't have the antifreeze spigot, check the inside ball valve drain and drain the water. Then check in your smart notebook if you cleaned the kitchen sink drain because this can give you nightmare next day after the Thanksgiving Day. Is your main sewer line clean. When you video camera last time the main sewer? Don't know? Call the plumber or the sewer technician and let them to help you. If you think they are expensive, think how will be when the basement flooded. Last but not the least is your water heater old? If not is OK but needs certainly a tune up. If is older, lets say 10-12 years old, consider to replace it. You did all of this? OK, now I wish you to have a wonderful fall.

From us to you with love
